Experience Best-in-class Picture Quality and Low Latency

Using Sony’s developed codec chip, the compromise between live streaming quality and latency becomes a thing of the past. This enables wireless cameras to have similar performance to wired cameras. With increased deployment flexibility, combining the CBK-RPU7 with the latest Sony cameras allows the highest quality productions to be created regardless of location.

The CBK-RPU7 supports a wide range of formats, from HD to 4K 60p/50p 10-bit HDR transmission, which enables pairing with a wide range of cameras for the highest tier of live production. In addition to supporting sports production, it also accommodates DCI 4K, 24p. This makes it suitable for cinema and virtual production remote monitoring.

Streamline Your Remote Live Operation

The CBK-RPU7 not only supports the latest innovations in HEVC encoding, but also offers a range of features to ensure efficient operations while operators are in remote locations. The bi-direction connectivity enables industry-standard features like tally and return video, and also include data links for remote camera shading.*
